Judge Roy Moore Apologies
  
If liberals were wrong to ram things down conservative throats before, it's equally wrong for conservatives to it to liberals now.
---StrongAxe on 12/15/17

But who is in power now? Those with the power wield it.

Both sides do the same things. Anyone who believes otherwise is ignorant, naive, or telling fibs. Irregular discussion and irregular voting is a tried and true way to discourage stalling, which the party out of power most certainly does.

BTW, when you complain about Trump you give legitimacy to all those who complained before about Obama. They felt the same way about BO as you do now about DT.


Aborts And Miscarriage
  
Any funding that goes to Planned Parenthood can ONLY go to OTHER non-abortion services they provide
---StrongAxe on 12/15/17

I cannot believe you really think that.

Their government funding for 2014 was $528M, They provided 324,000 abortions in 2014. Their total funding was $1.3B. If they used 100% of their funding only on abortion, that is an average of $4012 per abortion.

I say that the "real" cost for each abortion is likely $2500. That is for anesthesia, drugs, doctor fees, nursing, labs, exams, etc.

And does the patient pay any of this????

No, the bulk of their dollars go to abortions. The numbers do not lie.


Judge Roy Moore Apologies
  
Laws Congress is ramming through now, despite MOST Americans not wanting them.
---StrongAxe on 12/15/17

If I could interject.

The ACA was the largest and least desired Law to be forced down the throats of ALL Americans in the last decade.

Passed by a purely partisan vote, neither read or examined prior to the vote, the 2300 page bill was definitely "rammed" down our throats.

What is happening now, is the reversal of direction of the country.

As we conservatives "lumped" the last 8 years, you liberals need to "lump" the next four years.

because they ONLY care about punishing Planned Parenthood. Such laws make NO sense otherwise.
---StrongAxe on 12/15/17

What makes no sense if public funding of PP.

The previous administration "promised" us that our tax dollars would not go to fund abortion. That has proven to be a lie.

As an individual, I choose to protest against PP and would like to see it defunded.

Allowing a choice is certainly different that providing a choice. Our government has allowed the choice. I do not want our government to provide the choice.

They will have to answer to God for staying home or for voting for a baby killer.
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/14/17

Why do you think not voting for either bad candidate is a sin?

I did not vote for Trump or Clinton in the last election and did not vote for Obama or Romney in the previous election. Yet, I voted in both elections and will continue to vote in all future elections.

I prayed and sought the will of God in both elections. I determined that if I am unsure of both candidates, then the correct option is not to vote for either.

The Scriptures seem to confirm this:

Rom 14:23 "But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith, and whatever is not from faith is sin"


Judge Roy Moore Apologies
  
Does Judge Roy Moore deserve apologies?
---Jerry6593 on 12/9/17

I think there has been falsehood on both sides. No apology is necessary.

I think the best quote about all of this is: "the past is a foreign country, they do things differently there".

When we look through our sensibilities of today at events decades ago, we may see something we do not want to see.

Also, we must remember allegations are not facts. Facts require evidence that is deemed indisputable. An allegation is a claim without facts.

These women have no facts just allegations. The yearbook is also not a fact unless it can be proved by tests and handwriting analysis that Moore definitely signed it.


Bring Glory To God
  
and am appalled. You people... Are you bringing glory to God...or are you bringing glory to yourselves?
---Steveng on 12/10/17

I understand what you are attempting to do, Steven.

But how you are doing it is unwise, tactless, and combative.

Whenever you accuse someone you immediately put them on the defensive.

The tactful approach is to "identify" with your target audience.

Look at my synopsis of your blog question. You actually said "you people", the absolute worst thing you could say to offend and alienate people.

If you had said, " we are biting each others heads off. Are we bringing God glory or ourselves" it would be have received better.

Also, one must remember purgatory didn't become teaching by the RCC...To be clear the ideal that sinners have a second chance after death is abhorrent to, "Holy Scripture."...
---john9346 on 12/6/17

First, stop assuming I believe in purgatory. I do not.

Second, Scripture supports any and all viewpoints. The idea that Gehenna is the permanent repository for "lost" people is incorrect. Gehenna is destroyed by the end of The Revelation, as seen in this verse:

Rev 22:15 " But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie"

Who are these people outside the gates, after Death and Hades are thrown into the lake of fire?

The only thing anyone really CAN do to stop abortion is vote for pro-life law makers.
---ObamasBoy on 12/6/17

I disagree.

As I have stated before, I have sat quietly in front of one of our local PP mills with my sign (Abortion Stops a Beating Heart) many times.

I have no clue if I have changed anyone's mind, but I have received my share of death-stares and harassment from owners, operators, customers, pro-choice protesters, and even police.

But I will continue to do it as my part to stop abortion.


Is Senator Warren A Native
  
Is it though?
---NurseRobert on 12/5/17

Everyone in the US SouthEast has a story like EW. The Cherokee blood is so thin everyone born east of the Mississippi River and south of the Mason-Dixon line is likely to have Cherokee blood in them.

But none that I know claim this "native" blood. Why would they? Look at what it gets them. If you know any real natives they are likely to tell you what it costs them to be native.

But EW knew what she was doing. She suddenly "declared" only on this one Law directory, when doing so would attract attention, attract clients, and attract distinction.

Investigate how natives feel about "pretendians". They do not support EW.

Yes, there are many verses to start Heb 9:27, 2 Cor 5:8, Jn 19:30.
---john9346 on 12/5/17

Heb 9:27 - Judgment biblically is the setting right of things. This has no time limit. God can continue to set things right even after our death.

2 Cor 5:8 - see below

John 19:30 - I guess you are questioning everyone going to purgatory. I do too.

But what if only those who do not have a relationship with Jesus are outside the gates in Gehenna? What if God uses "purgatory" as a way to continue to bring those into right relationship, into right judgment?


Is Senator Warren A Native
  
I'm not sure how you can even compare these two...Warren stated she was native American...She was wrong to do so...Trump, OTOH, used the term as a racial slur.
---NurseRobert on 12/4/17

Both are sins. Is one sin greater than another?

Neither murdered. Both used their tongues to sin. Both sins are hated by God.

Warren - a lying tongue.

Trump - sowing discord among brethren

The following is a spit in the face of the Lord Jesus Christ's Atoning Work:
---john9346 on 12/5/17

Do you have any proof (BCV) that this is not true?

Seems to me this verse says as much:

Phil 1:6 "being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ"

Most people do not read the last five words of this verse. If they do, they do not read the words close enough to understand what they imply.

God will continue to work on us until the Day Jesus returns, even if we are dead!

she identified as a minority.
---kathr4453 on 12/4/17

When a person identifies as a minority, specifically a native, they normally belong to that native "tribe".

EW has never applied for membership in their tribe, has never had her ancestry traced which would tell her if she is native, and has never even met with a tribal representative about her ancestry.

And yet, she identified herself as "native" in a Law directory.

What was her motivation for identifying as a native if not some kind of benefit?

They even have a name for people who claim native blood without proof, "pretendians". They include Johnny Cash, Miley Cyrus, Johnny Depp and even Bill Clinton.

I said JESUS didn't say anything. Genesis was in the Old Testament.
---StrongAxe on 12/4/17

Jesus did say something. You keep missing it.

Matt 19:3 "Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all"

Any reason could include LGBT.

What was Jesus response? "What God has joined, let no man separate".

Jesus created them male and female. And He said "for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother".

What is the reason in "for this reason"?

For intercourse reasons. Get it?

I give Elizabeth the benefit of the doubt, just like you give Roy Moore the BENEFIT OF THE doubt.
---kathr4453 on 12/4/17

I do too, and she still does not measure up.

According to her family legend, if true, her heritage would make her 1/32 Cherokee.

According to most Native American tribes, a person needs at least 1/16 native heritage to be called "Native". Cherokee officials have said that she is not Cherokee.

Unless Elizabeth wants to return to the "one drop" Antebellum laws, she need to stop claiming she is a Native American.

I only heard about the baker in Colorado refusing to do a wedding cake for an LGBT couple.
---Monk_Brendan on 12/4/17

Is your argument that the baker is being hypocritical?

This baker has refused to make cakes for Halloween, hate speech, and anti-American themes.

This country is so odd. The two groups fighting over this reverse their positions in the NFL discussion. The liberals want the baker forced but the NFL players free, and the conservatives want the baker free and the NFL players forced.

Can we have liberty for all?

You are arguing from absence. The absence of a thing is not the same as the forbiddance of a thing.
---StrongAxe on 12/1/17

Sorry, but that is not correct. I am arguing from the affirmative viewpoint.

God affirmatively created a helper for Adam, a female. God affirmatively joins the man and woman in marriage. God affirmatively says "What God joins, do not let man separate".

Does this make LGBT illegal? No. Does it make it wrong? Yes.

There are many ways to separate men and women, divorce, adultery, LGBT, and many I cannot get thru the filters. All of them are banned via OT scripture. Why are they banned? Because they separate men and women.

Jesus never taught anything against LGBT...
---StrongAxe on 11/30/17

Better read your Bible again...

Jesus creates all things, John 1:3.

And God created them in God's image, male and female, Gen. 1:27

And God created a helper (suitable) for the man, a woman (not another man), Gen. 2:22

And Jesus refers to this in answering the Pharisees asking Him about divorce.

And Jesus says, "what God has joined, let no man separate".

God has joined men and women. LGBT is the separating of men and women. It is just as wrong as divorce.
